What did You During World Rhino’s Day!

It's Rhino's World Day!

World Rhino Day is marked on 22nd of September. We get to celebrate this wonderful species as well as recognize it’s importance in the ecosystem.

We lost Sudan early this year and his death promoted awareness around rhinos. More people got to understand some facts about them. From their conservation status to survival rates. More people came out to stand with this species in terms of resources and service.

Foundations, zoos, animal orphanage, conservation areas and even individuals. Have been giving donations for the protection of this species. More research is being conducted in hopes of saving them from extinction.

In Kenya , rhinos are hosted in settled conservation areas. Where each of them has caretakers who guard them around the clock. Unfortunately, some still die under mysterious causes or get poached. So technically, we are yet to provide them 100% security.

The death of the rhinos that were to be trans-located to Tsavo, still remains a mystery. The story died and everyone seemed to have moved on with life. Maybe waiting for another wildlife scandal. This are some of the sad stories surround our precious wildlife.

Rhinos are mainly hunted for their horns . Which sadly contains same material as our nails. But humans have different opinions and beliefs on their horns.

FYI: All the five rhinos species are not safe. They are either vulnerable, endangered or threatened.

Saving rhinos should not be a one day event. But rather a daily routine. Laws have to be strict and penalties be harsh to those who can’t put their hands off rhinos. In fact the poachers should not even be allowed to have a lawyer during the trial. It should be treated like a first degree murder.

What are you doing as a person to save species like rhinos?

There are variety of ways that you can contribute positively towards conservation and preservation of these species. They include:

  • Tourism – you get to contribute funds to the conservation areas you visit.
